Barringtonia: The perfect tree #ThursdayTreeLove
Do you remember drawing a tree as a child? All you did was make a green cloud and add a straight brown trunk. That was the perfect tree,
Well, the Mumbai Municipal Corporation seems to think that the Barringtonia is the perfect tree. It possibly is, for it is the only one that can withstand the strong winds that blow on Marine Drive during the monsoon.
That is why the whole of Marine Drive has a perfect row of Barringtonia planted along the sea face, adding to the beauty of this famous Mumbai seafront. Its thick canopy makes it the perfect umbrella during a freak monsoon shower and provides wonderful shade in the summer.
As you can see, there is a strong wind blowing yet this tree stands unbending.
Isn’t this the perfect tree after all?
